2015 Lodge Officer Elections

All voting members of Mikanakawa Lodge (current registered Scouts under 21 by September 6, 2014) are called to attend the election of Lodge Officers for 2015 at the Lodge Fellowship at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp, September 5-7.  The elections will take place on Saturday, September 6th.  Voting members must be paid current on lodge dues (you can pay your dues there or before at $15) and, due to event policy, must also be registered for the Fall Fellowship.  Circle Ten Council requires that all Scouts and Scouters on camp property for an event be registered for said event. 

Any current dues paid voting member in good standing with the lodge and Circle Ten Council may apply and run for an office; all candidates for office must be under 21 years of age for their entire term of office.  Deadline for applying is Saturday, August 9th at 12:00 noon.  Anyone interested must contact Lodge Adviser, Chuck Wagner at chuckwagner@aol.com or meet with him at an event prior to August 9.  If at least two Scouts have applied for any one lodge office by the deadline, nominations for that office will close and no one else may run for that position unless they drop down after losing at a higher office during elections on September 6th at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp.  If, after the August 9th deadline, a lodge office has one or no one running, then the office stays open and Scouts can be nominated from the floor when the Lodge Elections Committee is in session.

Candidates for any lodge office must interview with the Lodge Elections Committee before their election.  The Lodge Elections Committee explains the duties of each office and will either approve or deny a candidate from running for an office. The Lodge Elections Committee will begin interviewing candidates during the August Ordeal at Camp Constantin.
